Aperture are an alternative rock band from Edinburgh. The four piece have played gigs throughout Scotland in great venues such as Edinburgh's Voodoo Rooms with the current band line up and the infamous Glasgow Barrow lands with previous members. The band were established in late 2008 by charismatic female lead vocalist Lisa McGlynn. Lisa's love affair with rock music began after she was inspired to sing by her Uncle Patrick McGlynn who was rhythm guitarist in legendary Scottish pop/rock band “The Bay City Rollers”.
In September 2010 aperture had a line up change and have introduced talented lead guitarist Christopher Black and Drummer Lachlan McIntosh to the outfit. Lachlan's tight approach to drumming complements Gareth Noble's funky melodic bass playing style.
Aperture are inspired by acts such as PJ Harvey, Joy Division, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Killing Joke, The Cure, Arctic Monkeys and heavy rock bands such as Nevermore. Chris Black also has a strong interest in classical composers such as Bach.
Aperture create emotive music which has been compared to Skunk Anansie, Siouxie and The Banshees and The Cure
This year the band intend to tour the UK and release an E.P under self release.
